Llama’s imagination is too big for her cage at the zoo in Lima, Peru. With the help of her friends, Mono and Cuy, she makes a plan for a daring escape. Once she sees how fascinating the big city can be, will she ever return home?

The low unique word count and high-frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Llama en Lima’, make this an ideal comprehension-based™ reader for beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible.
